it really depends on who starts flying these secondary markets first. If KE opens 10 new TPAC cities before JL does, IND is more likely to get TPAC service first. If JL moves first, BNA is more likely.
And you say this because.....
BNA is a stronger Japan market and IND is a stronger Korea and China market.
Not exactly, few people know just how much Japanese investment there is around IND.
For starters, among all U.S. states, Indiana has the largest amount of Japanese investment per capita.
And out of US states, Indiana has the 3rd most Americans employed by Japanese companies (only behind California and Ohio)
Looking at the Fortune Global 2000 here is just a glimpse of the major Japanese companies with large presences or US/NA hqs in close proximity to IND in Indiana
Toyota Motor, Toyota Industries, Toyota Boshoku, Toyota Tsusho, Subaru Corp, Honda Motor, Honda Performance Development, Aisin, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Mitsubishi Motors, Sony DADC, SMC Corp, Hitachi, NSK, and the list goes on and on...
So, IND is definitely stronger in Japan than it is in Korea and China
